Age differences in soulmate relationships are quite common. Many people are shocked when they learn their soul mate is either so much older or younger than they are. Previously they were only attracted to, or got involved with, people their own age. Then out of the blue they realize they share a soulmate connection with someone with a huge age gap between them. Relationships with an age gap have their own challenges, and when you add the soulmate connection it can bring even more difficulties. But that does not mean you shouldn’t be open to a soulmate relationship where there is an age difference.
Society still smirks and looks down upon relationships where there are significant age differences between men and women, especially when the woman is considerably older than the man. Many of our clients worry about the age difference between themselves and their soulmate. If you and your soulmate don’t mind, who cares what anyone else thinks? If it works for the two of you, why listen to other people’s opinions? You are both adults and do not need everyone’s approval. It would be nice if friends and family were supportive, but you do not need their support to be a happy soulmate couple do you? As long as you do not let their lack of support hurt your relationship with your soulmate, they cannot affect it.
Some friends and family may mean well. They know the statistics for relationships with age differences are just expressing concern. Others may want to run your life or feel they know what is right for you more so than you do yourself. You know how you feel for your soulmate. They don’t. Have they even experienced the special connection of a soulmate relationship? People may see relationships with age differences as risky. Aren’t all relationships a risk to some degree? If you are going to take any relationship risk, wouldn’t you take it for a soulmate, regardless of the age differences?
One of the challenges relationships with an age difference has is having a family. One partner may feel they are too old for children or already have children. The same could be said for couples with little age difference. It may be more common in large age gap relationships, but it is not exclusive to them. It can be an issue in any relationship. Another challenge in relationships with an age gap is being labeled a gold digger or having one’s intentions questioned. Many people believe the only reason a couple would be together with such an age difference would be money and lifestyle. As long as the two of you know the truth, you don’t have to constantly prove yourself to others.
Don’t let the age difference between you and your soulmate concern you. The universe put the two of you together for a reason. Remain more focused on your connection, because, after all, age is just a number.
